I am a geographer and holding a chair in Infrastructuring Urban Futures at the Urban and Regional Planning and Geo-Information Management department at the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation. Prior to my appointment at ITC in 2017 I worked at the Department of Human Geography, Planning and International Development Studies of the University of Amsterdam (the NL) in various positions, ranging from postdoctoral researcher to Associate Professor. I obtained my PhD in Physical Geography from Utrecht University, the Netherlands.
